On that note, I have to say that in this book, I’m disappointed. It doesn’t even read like Ms. Steele. I caught myself wondering time and again if this was ghost written. I write only for myself, and repetition is something I consciously work out of my writing. In this book, there’s so much repetition that is completely unnecessary and distracting. It is apparent to me that the editing is lacking in this book. I don’t blame Ms. Steele. Writers write, editors NEED to edit.
As for the story line..... The story itself is rich in content, but it could have been so much more. Other reviews go into the actual story line, so I’d encourage you to read them; but beware of spoilers.
Danielle Steel fans will delight in her newest novel. Royal starts during the bombings of London, and the royal family decides to send their youngest daughter to the country under a fake name. She falls in love and gets pregnant by her host's son, who is leaving for the war when he turns 18. He dies. Charlotte, his bride, dies during childbirth, but after naming her daughter, Annie Louise. Annie's paternal grandparents also die, leaving Annie in the hands of the other woman living on the estate.
After the war, Annie is now being raised as a commoner, but is actually Her Royal Highness. After her presumed mother's death, her mother's husband goes to the Queen to tell her about her niece. After determining that she really is the daughter of Princess Charlotte, she is welcomed into the family fold.
It is great to see the continuity of the Royal Family. However, it does seem that many details are taken right from the real world of the real Royal Family.

An awe inspiring story of strength and sacrifice! While not nearly as easy to emotionally connect with as your typical Danielle Steel novel, ROYAL was fast paced, plot intensive and simply delightful. I loved it!
Seventeen year old Princess Charlotte was too ill to be around the bombing aspects of the war in London so the youngest child of the ruling King of England was sent to live in the countryside of Yorkshire for a year. While there, she fell in love with the son of her caretakers.
Destiny leaves behind a child who is raised as a commoner with no trail left of the royal lineage she carries. Fate brings the truth to the surface after nearly two decades and the knowledge of the lost princess is shared with the royal family, and the story plays out the details of their reunion.
I highly recommend this story to anyone who enjoys a royal family saga with hints of romance.
What a wonderful book this was, I read it in three days.

Well done Danielle and thank you for your lovely book.
I'm find the storyline farfetched to say the least and its very repetitive and has a lot of American words and mannerisms despite being set in England .
Quite surprised by the all 5* reviews to be honest
Injections of how the crown could have really turned the outcome upside down would have been great but was totally lacking but that’s just my expectation maybe
